Kennedy asks…..

Where did we go Wrong?......... I started school in the mid 80’s. I remember mum making peanut butter and honey sandwiches on white bread. I remember getting a homemade patty cake with pink icing or some biscuits as our special treat and we always had some fruit. Mum used to help out at tuckshop once a month and so it was then when we got to have a sausage roll and of course a jam and cream doughnut. We all drank a cup of milk for afternoon tea, maybe watched one cartoon on TV, did our homework and then played outside til the sun went down. I didn’t know anyone who couldn’t eat nuts or who was gluten free. We pretty much had meat and 3 veg every night – The vegies grown from my dad’s uncle’s garden and a take away meal like pizza or McDonalds was maybe 4 times a year if we were lucky because dad thought it was rubbish and with four kids it cost a fortune. There was maybe a handful of overweight children in the whole school and there were no kids having to line up at the office to take their medication. There were some naughty / or disruptive kids but they soon settled down once the teacher

“One belief is that we have chemically assaulted our bodies and our children and I tend to agree.”

Mum made me Peanut Butter sandwiches growing up.. Now Peanuts Kill people!

mentioned the word Principal and now to make me sound older than I think I am – our school had about four computers in the library that the whole school shared. This must sound so foreign to most parents today who have children in primary school where having a laptop is becoming compulsory, nuts are band, teachers are taught how to administer EpiPens, gluten free, preservative free, chemical free, natural, artificial colours, dairy free are a must know vocabulary and the rates of Behavioural problems, Learning Difficulties, ADD, Autism, Excema and other skin conditions has sky rocketed. The fight to get kids off the computer games, off facebook, out of their rooms and outside has us banging our own heads against a brick wall especially with fears of child safety making us think that maybe its better they stay inside. What has happened to kids in such a short period of time? Physically, Chemically, Mentally, Socially and Emotionally, they are dealing with a completely different world than we grew up in, with different needs, different dis – eases and different attitudes about who they are and what they can be and do.

Kids stay inside and play video games now, I used play outside until the sun went down... 4

The number of lifestyle diseases these days has reached epidemic proportions. Allergies and sensitivities to food and our environment has increased tenfold in the past 10 years and it doesn’t seem to be improving.

One belief is that we have chemically assaulted our bodies and our children and I tend to agree. These days we grow foods in conditions where fungicides, pesticides and herbicides are used liberally. This affects the food we eat and the people who live near the crop spraying areas. Childhood vaccinations have doubled with shorter time frames in between each new shot starting in the first 24hours of life when our immune system is still immature and still adapting to the outside world environment. Foods are being eaten that are produced in a chemical laboratory and don’t even resemble any food from nature. Foods are refined, defined, separated, deodorised and hydrogenated. We use personal care products, shampoo, conditioner, makeup and deodorant that clog, suppress, inflame and suffocate our skin. We make sure we disinfect the house and our hands as much as possible and we fill the air we breath with air fresheners and artificial fragrances, not to mention closing the whole house up and using the air conditioner rather than airing out the house.

The so called ‘food’ that we eat!

Throughout this year, I will be recommending ways to help change some of the small things to hopefully make a big difference in the way you and your children feel, look and act. Who knows, it might just save yours or someone you love ‘s life.

EMF: A Hidden Danger What is EMF? Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) emissions or radiation are created whenever electrical power flows though a wire, conductor or appliance. EMF cannot be seen, felt or heard, but they are present in and around all electrical lines and devices such as mobile phones, computers laptops, tv’s, microwaves, and basically anything which has current. EMF emissions are measured in units called milliGauss (mG). The effects of EMF on the human body have become a highly controversial issue. There is a growing number of reputable scientists who claim EMF can cause cancer, leukaemia in children, depression and even suicide. A most significant study headed by Australian Oncologist Ray Lowenthal was recently (Sept 2007) seen on the ABC National News. The newscast reported “A Tasmanian study shows that children living near high-voltage power lines are more likely to develop cancer. Oncologist Ray Lowenthal led the research, which explores the impact of electric power lines on the development of diseases including lymphoma and leukaemia. The research shows that people who lived within 300 metres of power lines when they were children were more likely to suffer from cancer.”

How does it affect us? The level of awareness over the effects of EMF has increased dramatically over the last few years. It has been suggested that over exposure to this radiation might produce symptoms as such:  Headaches, insomnia and depression  Various eye diseases  Influence people’s wellbeing and biological response  Have effect on cognitive functions  Affect the immune system  Be responsible for leukaemia and brain cancer There are many other studies that support these types of findings. This year, in 2011, the WHO (World Health Authority) formally released a report stating that mobile phones are a danger and can cause brain cancer. Dr. Charlie Tio, a high profile brain surgeon, reported on Channel 7’s Today Tonight on May 10th 2011, that there has been a significant increase in brain tumours in the temporal and frontal lobes of the brain. This is the area next to our ear where we place our phone. He believes this increase is directly due to the use of mobile phones.


What can we do about EMF Levels? The easiest thing is to try to reduce your exposure to the fields. In our technologically advanced world, this is asking for a great deal too much! Living without EMF has almost become i m p o s s i b l e , i t i s a l s o inconceivable. Electricity and electronic products such as kitchen appliances, computers, laptops and mobile phones have become part of our daily lives, even part of the lives of children from the time they are born. They are even part of the equipment of the vehicles we drive. All this wonderful electronic equipment will continue to play a growing role in our lives and in the lives of the generations to come. The invention of electricity was a revolution

for the modern world, and its nature deserves to be understood and respected. Because of the controversial nature and until the full fact of the effects of EMF radiation are completely proven, the best course of action would be to avoid exposure, or at least protect ourselves and our loves ones from its effects. It only makes sense! So what’s the next best thing? Protection!
